Talking Re: Magic pens to cover a chips dents and scratches

Only time I would use a scratch pen would be for the door edges, should there be a few tiny chips. Just to cover what most people don't see. Best course for anything more than minor, IMHO: rub down, clean, mask, match spray and laquer. That as a bare minimum for it to last any length of time.

Need to do this after being swiped by a load of very fast moving, arrogant trees who targeted my front wing, the evil, underhanded gits!

That's what happens to plastic - paint comes off too easily.
